Progress...10"x 20" Bull Falls w/Zorn Palette in oil












A bit more opportunity to work at this. Strikes me
strange after so much painting outdoors, to be paint
this one in studio almost at leisure. As a moment
allows.

Its been interesting thus far to be cognizant of a
gamut of possibilities, and choosing what to heighten
and what to keep more subdued...

Getting there...and, here too is a closeup..


















Please note that the images are quite larger if you click
on them...and a chance to observe brushwork and more subtle
color...

Larry, you know I am drawn to color first, but the intricacies in this and the design draw my eyes right in. Lovely.

thanks Jo...and now, it will be interesting to see what I lose, or what I gain to attempt my usual limited color palette in a second painting of this falls scene.

I believe having painted this monotone first will in all likelihood account for any successes...
